OA Agreement with Qatar National Library


Since 2019 Springer Nature and Qatar National Library have an active Open Access agreement. The Library was the first consortium in the Middle East to implement such an OA agreement. Qatar National Library acts as a steward of Qatar’s national heritage by collecting, preserving and making available the country’s recorded history. The Library provides equal access to all types of information and services and aims to enable the people of Qatar to positively influence society by creating an exceptional learning and discovery environment.

Students and researchers across the academic and governmental institutions in Qatar will benefit from access to Springer Nature's online content portfolio and can take advantage of publishing their own research open access.

Researchers from participating consortium institutions are able to access over 2,250 journals from Springer Nature imprints and have the chance to publish their research through open access in more than 1,850 Springer hybrid journals and over 600 fully OA journals for free, allowing for a wider reach of current research findings and a greater benefit for both science and society.
